What Are the Five Human Senses?
Touch - Touch is defined as the first sense which humans develop. It consists of many distinct sensations that are communicated to the brain, induced by the neurons inside your skin. Sensations like pressure, temperature, pressure, vibration, pain, and so on are all attributed to different receptors present in the skin.
Sight - Perceiving things or sight through the eyes; maybe a complex process. Since the light reflects off an object to the eye. The light then bends on the cornea and passes through the pupil. The colored part of the eye works like a shutter of the camera. It shuts out the light or opens it for more light.
Hearing - Whether it's music, car honks, or laughter – all of them reach the ears in the form of sound waves in the ear. The sound waves then beat funnels through the outer ear, to the ear canal, and then to the tympanic membrane. The membrane then transfers the vibrations to the small bones, called the auditory ossicles.
Smell - Do you know that humans can smell 1 trillion scents? They can do this with the olfactory cleft found at the top of the nasal cavity.
Taste - Do you know that the small bumps on the top of the tongue consist of taste buds? When we eat, the food enters the papillae and reaches the taste buds. Then it gives the signals to the brain about the taste it witnesses.
